Samacitta retreats are like spiritual surgery or psychic transformation...
An integral and holistic approach to being, to self, to living with awareness is what Samacitta retreats are all about. Working with your own highly qualified yoga instructor and holistic bodywork therapist, you will delve into immersion with yoga and bodywork and eat highly nutritious food and live with intention and optimum nourishment to help restore you back to balance in mind, body and spirit. We offer two types of retreat service: wellness/yoga retreats as part of our annual retreat calendar and also carefully curated bespoke retreats tailored to your own group/individual requirements for groups of family and friends who wish to spend a week together either for time out, to nourish or perhaps as a special celebration for an anniversary or birthday in an exclusive private retreat space of your choice. We have a selection of preferred venues to offer you if you are interested in hosting your own bespoke retreat.
With a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 14 spaces on any retreat, our June 2019 retreat was in Puglia, Italy at one of , at a private masseria near to Lecce - nearest airports are Brindisi and Bari. Dates for our upcoming 2020 retreats are to be confirmed. On retreat you are able to shed old layers and renew, rejuvenate and restore over the 7 days/6 night stay that includes asana, meditation, pranayama and bodywork and delicious chef-cooked local Apulia cuisine. Fresh vegetables from the home garden and lunches outside by the pool after bodywork treatments from Katrina punctuated by dips in the pool and walks in the olive groves... Practise yoga twice daily a.m. and p.m. The accommodation is set in an idyllic olive grove estate and features stunning trulli architecture, a beautiful pool, a perfect wooden yoga space and hectares of grounds and gardens for lovely, long walks under the shade of the olives.
Prepare to immerse yourself in simple Apulian pleasures, extremely healthy and alkalising, local food, and a yoga program designed to recalibrate and realign you. This retreat is open to everyone, suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners. Please enquire for future 2020 retreat dates.
All our retreat venues are ideal for meditation, down-time, reflection and time out to restore and return to a greater sense of being from the inside out, rather than from the outside in. Please join us.
